Guilty Plea in Steroid Case

Father gave son steroids, probe finds

James Gahan, 41, pleads guilty in a case that also snares his child's personal trainer.

Like many fathers of budding athletes, James Gahan sought an edge for his 13-year-old son, a record-setting and world-ranked inline speed skater.

But Corey Gahan got faster illegally, a federal probe determined.

The 2004 teenage national champion from Lady Lake cheated, using steroids and human growth hormones that were provided to him by his father, who has pleaded guilty to federal drug charges.
"It shows the lengths to which some parents will go to win at all costs through their children," U.S. Anti-Doping Agency general counsel Travis Tygart said Monday. "It's the worst kind of scenario: putting a child's health and future at risk."

Tampa Man gave steroids to skating son

By Times Staff Writer
Published August 28, 2007

A man pleaded guilty in federal court to giving his 13-year-old son steroids while the boy trained to compete internationally on a roller-skating team.

James Edward Gahan, 41, formerly of Lady Lake, entered his plea on Friday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Thomas B. McCoun III.

A sentencing date has not been set, but Gahan faces a minimum of one year in federal prison. The maximum he could get is a 10-year sentence.

I can only guess that some coach/trainer/guru/a-hole managed to convince the parent that the steroids wouldn't wreak havoc on a growing boy's physiology. I don't really know any of the science behind it, but basic common sense says that adding more hormones into the mix during puberty just cant be good. *shrug*

Delayed sentencing sought in steroid case

Postby Robert on Fri Jan 04, 2008 9:22 pm

Update on James Gahan case:

TAMPA, Fla., Jan. 3 (UPI) -- A Florida man who admitted giving his son steroids to improve his in-line skating performance has asked a federal judge to postpone his sentencing.

James Gahan faces five years in federal prison. He is scheduled to be sentenced Monday.

In a motion filed New Year's Eve in federal court in Tampa, Fla., Gahan's lawyer said he would like more time to assist police and federal agents in investigations of steroid distribution, the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel reported.

"He would prefer not to see other fathers follow his footsteps," lawyer Thomas Ostrander said.

Gahan, now in the Hernando County Jail, is estranged from his son and has lost his home to bankruptcy, the Sentinel said.
